Business drivers are likely to monitor fuel efficiency

Research by RAC Business found company drivers are more likely to try and keep the cost of fuel down than private car owners.
Business drivers are likely to monitor fuel efficiency

RAC’s annual report on motoring suggested that 40% of company car drivers will change their driving behaviour to keep their MPG as low as possible, in comparison to 27% of private vehicle owners.

66% of business car drivers said they checked their fuel consumption, whereas just 44% of private car drivers said they were aware of it.

The new figures come shortly after HMRC cut company car fuel allowances, across six qualifying categories, to 11p per mile for diesel and 13p per mile for petrol.

RAC Business Services director, David Aldridge said: “Fuel prices have dropped significantly over the past few months but filling up the tank can still represent a huge chunk of a business’s expenditure. Adopting a fuel-efficient driving style could add up to savings of thousands of pounds every year across a fleet of vehicles while also contributing to a reduction in emissions.”

Furthermore to the research, the RAC highlighted how business drivers could achieve better fuel efficiency by using in-car technology.

90% of business drivers said they used their vehicle’s dashboard computer, in comparison with 68% of private motorists.

However, 27% of non-company drivers were more likely to calculate fuel consumption manually, 5% use a smartphone app and 3% would calculate it online.
